Arsenal’s Emiliano Martinez closes in on £19.5m move to Aston Villa

Mikel Arteta had made it clear to Martinez that, despite recent performances, Bernd Leno would be his number one choice and was not keen to rotate goalkeepers in cup competitions.

For someone who has become one of Chelsea’s forgotten men in recent years it’s perhaps important to note it was the Belgium striker who came on against West Brom when the score was 0-0 with the Premier League title still to be clinched.

The £18million capture of Diangana, excellent on loan at The Hawthorns last season, raised eyebrows at his former club West Ham, whose skipper Mark Noble voiced his displeasure about the 22-year-old winger being sold.

Last season Palace’s biggest weakness was the number of goals they scored. Only Norwich, who finished bottom, scored fewer (26) than Palace’s 31.

A 14th-placed finish was largely down to Palace’s strong defensive record.

Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa have been pushing for the England U21 international with Liverpool still to make a decision. They would want over £20m plus clauses if they sell while any loan move would involve penalty payments if he did not play.

Since that 2016-17 season he’s made cameo appearance after cameo appearance without ever establishing himself in the firm plans of a manager he’s played under.

Loan spells at Borussia Dortmund and Valencia – as well as the one at Palace – have come and gone.

Emiliano Martinez closes in on Aston Villa move though Brighton plot late move

Emiliano Martinez is closing in on a move to after they agreed a £19.5million deal with The Argentine was left out of Arsenal’s line-up to face if all goes to plan.

Michy Batshuayi’s return to Crystal Palace suits every party.

For Chelsea, who have renewed Batshuayi’s contract for one more year until 2022, they protect an asset which could be worth much more with a full season of Premier League football under his belt.

‘You can overdo the messages sometimes and then they might feel inhibited. If you just let them develop and realise for themselves, it can be more effective. You don’t want to put too much pressure on them.’

And at Palace it all seems to make sense. From that previous loan spell not much has changed from Roy Hodgson still being manager to Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha still occupying positions in an attack which Batshuayi fitted in so well.
